Brief observations on what’s been popular in the Constructed Queue lately:
Public Enemy #1
NT – Removal
The go-to deck in constructed at the moment. Spitemage, Phoenix, Zimus, Epidemic, some GGP/GGD, some Scorchmane.
AU – Flex, Robots
Variants of the 2nd place deck from the Apr 4 FWIQ and modified grow-bots are seeping into the queue. Thundersaur, Oros, Strategist, Ironbeard, Echowisp, Gargoyle, Sentinel, mix and match.
NT – Zombies
Xrath’s Will, Spitemage, Xrath, Darkshaper, Corpulent Shambler, some Keeper, Epidemic, Vyric’s.
UT – Yetis, Zoo
Yetis but not as many as there were. Some Zoo, sometimes without the Mutants.
AN – Drix
Drix and the Metaminds with some strong Nekrium under-drops and removal.
NU – Nuada (PEsh)
Spam Tarsus and anything that has the word plant on it.
NU – Conjurer/Runebark/Arboris
Spam Nekrium spells, steal life, grow Runebarks, sometimes play Arboris.
NU – Infinite Tarsus
The goal is to make the first card in the graveyard a Tarsus using Shallow Grave. After that, keep playing Varna’s Pact to bring back as many Tarsus as possible. Ideally this deck turns the 3-of limit into a joke and allows the player to see 9 (or more!) ways to build a Tarsus each shuffle.
